 Last time we checked in with Nick Young, he was celebrating missed threes and having his house robbed.

In keeping with the constant party I imagine is his life, Swaggy was riding a zamboni at the Kings game on Tuesday …

Exit Interviews: Evaluating the 2013-‘14 Philadelphia 76ers

Exit Interviews: Evaluating the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers

source:  It’s an unusual team that leaves you with such a feeling of confidence and optimism after losing 77% of their games in the regular season, but such was the story of the 2013-’14 Philadelphia 76ers. The Sixers were very bad indeed, but they were bad with a purpose, and frankly, they could (and probably should) have been a lot worse. The mere fact that they won a couple games in their last ten…

Watch Carl Crawford’s botched catch attempt that led to Phillies victory in extras

You can listen to the Phillies broadcast of the awful catch attempt made by Dodgers outfielder Carl Crawford here, or see it above while watching L.A. manager Don Mattingly wax poetic about his team’s poor defense above. Credit Chooch for hustling his ass off to second base on the error.

Phillies beat writer Jim Salisbury was there in L.A. to…

At least Evan Turner didn’t punch any teammates in Philadelphia

source: APThings haven’t been all sunshine, rainbows, and wins for the Indiana Pacers since they dealt for Evan Turner in the eleventh hour of the NBA trade deadline. We always knew Evan to be a little bit different while he played in Philadelphia, but there were never reports like the one Yahoo!’s Adrian Wojnarowski wrote about after the Pacers win over the Hawks last night.

Dan Carcillo gives Flyers fans the metaphorical finger in 4-1 Rangers win

Dan Carcillo gives Flyers fans the metaphorical finger in 4-1 Rangers win

carcillo

One upset Flyers fan gave Dan Carcillo the middle finger and Carbombs didn’t have to say a word.

That’s the kind of night it was in South Philadelphia on Tuesday as the Flyers fell behind early and never really found a way to battle back. The Rangers looked like they’d been studying up on Dikembe Mutombo Geico commercials.

Philly’s best chance to get back into it came with about ten minutes left…

Moving Lecavalier up to second line could pay dividends for Flyers; Mason to backup Emery tonight

Andrew MacDonald, Jason Akeson, Brayden Schenn, Vincent Lecavalier

Despite heading home tonight for Game 3 and tied 1-1 in their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers, the Philadelphia Flyers’ offense could use a boost.

Welcome back to the second line, Vinny Lecavalier.

In an effort to create some more offensive punch, Flyers head coach Craig Berube is moving Lecavalier from the fourth line back to the second line with Bradyen Schenn and Wayne…

Ryan Howard suddenly off to one of best starts of his career at the plate

source: APEven back when he was bashing upwards of 40 home runs per season, Ryan Howard was a notoriously slow starter. Now all of a sudden, when everybody is least expecting it, the Philadelphia Phillies three-time All-Star first baseman might be in the midst of the best month of April in his 11-year big-league career.

With five homers through the first 19 games in 2014, Howard is one swat away from tying…

The time Craig Berube sucker punched Jeremy Roenick: Watch the punch that started it a decade earlier

http://player.theplatform.com/p/C_ZQDC/OBXnIiiPouAX/embed/select/3b_8ADVnpnYo?params=zone%3Dcsnvideo&autoPlay=false

source:  Jeremy Roenick told a pretty wild tale on 94 WIP yesterday about how calculated hockey feuds can be. And just how patient a hockey goon can be in exacting his revenge.

The story goes back more than a decade when Roenick was playing for the Flyers and the Chief was hired as a…
